Alternating path to VM floating IP

I am seeing unusual behavior on accessing VM through floating IP. Internal IP address of the VM is and floating IP is (external network CIRD When I ping the VM form my local desktop on subnet (same as floating IP subnet), sometimes response comes from internal IP address and sometimes from floating IP.

devmachine:~ knodir$ ping
PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=61 time=3.135 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=61 time=2.676 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=11 ttl=61 time=2.791 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=12 ttl=61 time=2.401 ms

I am not able to ssh to the machine either. I get connection reset error. I think my TCP connection is getting alternated between 2 different paths and therefore getting reset as connection is not persistent for ssh session to complete.

devmachine:~ knodir$ ssh cirros@
cirros@'s password:  Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer

Has anyone seen this behavior? I'm using kilo with DVR and OVS.
